Wont do anything until the tuesday or wednesday after when our friends come down from Colorado for a couple of days.They will bring some lobster tails which I will grill and serve with angel hair pasta and a chili garlic vinaigrette and salad and some nice bread.The next night it will be pork loin ribs etc and salad.Breakfast everybody is on their own bagels,cream cheese,cereal,yogurt and fruit.Lunch the same deal they are on their own,deli cold cuts,cheese,good bread,hard rolls with all the sides and tortilla chips with salsa and roasted red pepper hummus,I also might make a nice light soup as well.
I learned awhile back not to kill myself with breakfast and lunch when I have company,I just show them the fridge and they have what they want when they want, dinner is all I worry about and I prep as much as possible ahead of time.
As far as sweets go I will have a Grand Marnier Bundt cake,a fruit tart and ice cream in fridge which I always have on hand.Thats another thing they hafto get on their own if they want it

Well I can't answer for momorial day, but i take it that's like the american version of victoria day (more or less)?
so i'll talk about what we did for that.
not to darn much, i must admit!
we had fire works the day before, that's about it. I don't recall what we had for dinner though.
It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair.

Since you asked SurvivorGirl....

Memorial Day is a day of rememberence for those that have passed while serving in the military, and also a day to remember and appreciate those that still serve/or have served in the military. Typically those that served in WW1, WW2, Korean war, Vietnam, and those currently serving in the military and current war. So, if Victoria Day is one in which you honor your military, then yes I guess it's basically the same holiday, just celebrated on a different day. In my town we don't have fireworks, but we do have a parade, and lots of military planes flying overhead, and vets from all the wars they served. Some are so elderly that they cannot walk in the parade so they are provided with a bus through the parade and they wave to the crowd.
